About Plum Tomato jam ( no pectin ) Recipe

Plum and Tomato Jam?? Seriously?? Yes and it taste very good too! It is not by accident that I made this jam. Tomato jam is something I have always had since my childhood as my mom would use up ripe tomatoes and make quick jams to last only for 2 or 3 days and used jaggery! So the memories were kindled, and I decided to add plums too. It turned out well, got a gorgeous colour and the succulent tiny bits of plums and tomatoes just adds to the taste. Adding plums was not part of the plan, my eyes spied on some ripe plump plums sitting idly in the fridge and I thought why not!!
